A visual masterpiece and more...
2 April 2012 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I've just recently discovered this gem of the Hungarian cinema on the Second Run DVD series (many "lost" and recently restored excellent films,especially of the Eastern Europe,can be found there).It's a feast for one's eyes and mind.A visual masterpiece of rare beauty,full of philosophical thoughts about love,the meaning of life and death.The story is about a man looking back on his life,remembering many women he once loved and now,at the end of his life road, trying to come to terms with his own past.It is a slow movie,with lots of flashbacks of beautiful women,gorgeous places and landscapes,fine interiors and effective music.Not to be missed by the true lovers of good art-house cinema.Highly recommended!
